Jonah Hex and Quick Draw McGraw



When I was a kid, I loved to get up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons, and liked all of the Hanna-Barbera characters.  Disney was not represented in the mornings and while I loved Warner Bros. Looney Toons, they seemed to show the same episodes over and over - but H-B seemed to have a lot of different shows to offer, from Super-heroic Action to Funny Animals.  Every once in a while I will watch an old episode on YouTube and it brings me right back to those days.

Did Quick Draw take time off Quick Draw McGraw & Hill Publishing co.? LOLXD

Love it!

I was going to say this one seems a little too silly. But in light of DC's all-too-real (and downright awful) Suicide Squad-Banana Splits crossover, it doesn't seem all that bad by comparison... :)

Well, I think that DC's Jonah Hex-Yosemite Sam crossover (also featuring Foghorn Leghorn!) worked quite well...

In the past 4 to 5 years that I've been doing my spreadsheets on these covers, this is the strangest covers I've ever seen.

Simreeve: it's a pity the same can't be said for the Top Cat/Catwoman pairing.

Somebody somewhere asked if the Black Panther had met his Pink cousin. I thought, I should pass that team-up idea along to SuperTeam Family, but, then, I reconsidered. You've pulled off some wacky team-ups, but the Panthers would be too silly. Then I saw Hex-El Kabong… :D

Another inspired pairing, Ross!

But... Suicide Squad & Banana Splits? Jonah Hex & Yosemite Sam? Top Cat & Catwoman? These were real comics? Now I feel better about my decision to stop buying new comics in 2002.

On the other hand, Top Cat and Catwoman sounds interesting...

Cary Comic said...

@Mindful Webworker: Nope! That's Quick-draw McGraw in his public identity. El Kabong is his _secret_ identity.*

*And Ross is probably saving the latter for a team-up with Zorro!

Hopefully a cameo from EL KABONG!:D

“I’ll do the thinnin’ around here, and don’t you forget it!” The less said about the Banana Split/SS crossover, the better...

That's like those cop-show suspects who go:

"I refuse to dignify that remark with a response."

Makes me wish I could noogie their noggins and shout:

"Hello! That, in itself, IS a response!"

My point (intended to be 49% polite/51% firm) is that, if you truly wanted less said about "SS meet BS," you should have somehow restrained _yourself_ from mentioning them!

The first issue of Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles features a walk-on by Quick Draw -- unfortunately, as a cop on the take.

He doesn't show up in #2, but we get a slightly more realistic Squiddly Diddly.

Top Cat/Catwoman was a relatively short 'second feature' in a comic mainly focused on another team-up. TC had accidentally found his way across the multiverse to Gotham, and was still there at the end of the incident... which it was hinted would lead into a series of his own.
There were also somewhat amusing Batman/Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny/LSH team-ups. (Road-Runner/Lobo wasn't as good, in my opinion...) My own favourite out of the batch, though, was Wonder Woman/Tasmanian Devil which re-cast Taz as being a mythological monster: That worked REALLY well.

I absolutely hated the Elmer Fudd/Batman book. I get that he's famous for his speech impediment but after the second page of internal monologue with it I got fed up and skimmed the rest of the issue.

Jay Johnson said...

I see nobody else has mentioned the Space Ghost / Green Lantern book. Which is probably just as well, as it was incredibly medicore. But the back-up story with Ruff & Ready as out of work stand-up comedians was even worse than their old cartoons, which I didn't think was possible.

Bradley Walker said...

Bringing it back to Quick Draw, he teamed up with Scooby and the gang already: https://www.comics.org/issue/1676263/cover/4/

Jonah Hex has been sent to some weirder places telling you type of life has had.

Michael Jones said...

Hex could always meet the Jetsons in the future.

That did get a bit much, I agree, but there were times..

Note to Jonah; don't worry when McGraw reaches for his gun. Worry when he reaches for his guitar.
